|cardigan: new look|
|pencil skirt: h+m|
Considering I'm a significant way through a 100-day shopping ban, you'd think it would be tricky to find something I hadn't yet worn for the first time, right?
Wrong. I'm a chronic "buy now, think about it later" kind of shopper, and a few months ago now came across this polka dot skirt in h+m and was really taken with it. When I came to wear it a few days later I wasn't so sure about the shape and fit, so I bunged it on the pile of pencil skirts which have built up over the last year or so, and wore something else.
I'd sort of forgotten about it until this morning, when I decided to give it another try. It's quite a thick jersey material, so I'm naturally concerned about it's clingy nature around my hips, thighs and bum, which I'm fairly self-conscious about ad a general rule anyway.
I went with a dull and unexciting t-shirt, and a thought I'd add a pair of shoes which I really LOVE in order to try and build up the confidence.
Also I managed to break my camera, hence the terrible photos at strange angles, but I hope to have it back up and running; it's done it before, I was just in a rush this morning to get to the parcel office and pick up my mystery parcel - turns out I won an ASOS competition - yay!
Ooh, I tried out the carrot and courgette muffin recipe yesterday evening; it turned out really well and was very simple - I'd definitely recommend it, so the recipe can be found here. I picked it up from a Sainsbury's tweet the other day.
